“We both went to Abeokuta and visited five different schools, of which they rejected me, because the school season was already in the middle.
“Later, I was taken to another school in the beginning of a new season. But, on my first day in school, they asked of my name and I gave them, but when they asked of my father’s name, I found it irritating.
“By my own training in the village, to mention your father’s name is an insult, and for him to ask for my father’s name is an insult. So, I slapped him, and I was punished for that.
“He said that would have been the end of his educational career, but God’s plan made him rise to his present level.”
